India celebrates tourism festival 'Paryatan Parv' to boost tourism industry
India organised the campaign called 'Paryatan Parv' or tourism festival coordinated by the Central government to promote tourism in the country by eliciting participation in the event by state governments, Central ministries, travel associations, organisations, school and college students and the general public.

During his earlier Man Ki Baat address, PM Narender Modi had said, "The country is blessed with numerous tourists sites, its cuisine, dance, music, attire, customs etc. and under the umbrella of Paryatan Parv one can get glimpses of all this and more."

According to Modi, tourism had helped him a lot in understanding things.

"I request you too, to feel the 'Unity in Diversity' which is not a mere slogan but is a storehouse of enormous energy. The dream of 'Ek Bharat – Shreshtha Bharat' is inherent in this," he urged.

He suggested that there will be a value addition in tourism only when we travel not only as a visitor but also like a student and make efforts to assimilate, understand and adapt.

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) directed the affiliated schools to observe several activities to promote tourism among students by organising school-based seminars in October month without disrupting studies.

The schools have been asked to organise special assemblies to highlight different cultures of various states of India along with holding essay writing, slogan writing, debate, quiz and painting competitions on various tourism related themes.
